Helpful and thorough job on a pre-purchase inspection. Henry (owner) explained all this issues with the car. Professional, clean, organized, and thorough. They have generally been available for the same day or next day appointment. They are not specialists with my make of car (VW), but are excellent overall. I took my car to a VW specialist in Wheaton for another job, he pointed out a minor (?) diagnostic detail that Allen sounded like he missed (specialist saw the 'disease' while Allen noticed the 'symptom'...but I am a layperson so you can discount my opinion on that). I went back for the repairs recommended for the inspection, which ended up being about $80 more than the estimate ($487 versus $565). I did not get an explanation as to why, which was a bit dissapointing. Overall, I would recommend Allen Automotive for general repairs.
